Hello All -
My situation is that for ONLY 6 days now, I've been taking Percocet 5/325mg (up to 4 X's daily) as prescribed for my chronic pain issues. Having said that, I've not taken more than 2.5 tabs in any 24 hour period, yet the pain relieving affect (which is 20 to 30% at best) is lasting for less than 4 hours now per dose...when originally they worked for close to 7 hours.
My question is, would it be normal for the duration in which they last to be lessening after only 6 days of use, especially when taking such a low dose to boot??
I'm not taking any other meds in conjunction with the Percocets, and for the previous 3 weeks I had been taking Vicodin 5/500's that did very little to diminish the pain I level have.
Any suggestions or ideas? Or, am I expecting too much? Or, is there such a thing as having a high tolerance to pain meds?
Please help and thanks folks!
